My desire in life has always been to beautify the things that surround me, including helping others to feel and achieve their inner beauty. I was born in  San Diego Ca, I have traveled a lot throughout my life, the thing that is a constant for me is being taken by peoples individual style. There has always been a lot of excitment for me to be involved in projects that include beauty,make up, fashion and adornments. I have always been fascinated in how people express themselves in all cultures and  throughout history.
